The Best African Safaris in 2016

The Swahili word safari, meaning long journey, was first introduced into the English language in the nineteenth century. Fast forward to 2016 and the term has come to represent a whole raft of bucket list experiences, from walking safaris to canoeing, horse riding and even flying. It is a…

Richard's Camp, Kenya

I have been fortunate enough to travel to many far-flung parts of the globe but I've never been on safari or travelled to East Africa. In December, however, I was lucky enough to visit Kenya where I headed to Nairobi briefly, before heading down to the Masai Mara to stay at Richard's River…

Six of the Best: Tented Camps

Camping: one of the most divisive words in the travel lexicon. So often associated with cramped tents, dodgy Trangias and the vague whiff of wet dog. The irony is that some of the most luxurious and unique hotels in the world are tented camps; think large canopies, quirky furniture, spacious…

A Little Country called Peru

Having travelled extensively through Latin America, I thought I knew what was coming as I landed in Lima: incredibly friendly people, vibrant and colourful markets, weird, but delicious food, jaw-dropping landscapes and great weather. Although I wasn't wrong, I was by no means prepared...

What's Hot Right Now

January is a month generally associated with New Year blues, dark days and distinctly British weather. That is to say it's not necessarily a favourite. In fact one of the only things it is good for is planning your getaways for the year ahead, and that's where we come in. Whether it's…

Stroopwafel and Poffertjes

There's a certain sheepishness that accompanied me telling friends that I was off to Amsterdam for a few days this year.

How to do Hawaii

Hawaii is a land of beautiful beaches, looming volcanoes, lush rainforest and chic boutique hotels. So if geography was no barrier, this is how I'd spend a day in the marvellous place that is Hawaii...

Your European A-Z

Hillary Clinton once said that 'Europe is a miracle'. She may not have meant it in a strictly luxury travel sense but flattery will get her everywhere, and we at Original Travel most certainly agree. Our expert team has selflessly travelled the length and breadth of the continent in search…

Fes Music Festival

The little known annual music festival of Fes in Morocco is a gem, not only because it is still relatively unknown (therefore retains its authenticity) but also because of the fantastically high standard of musicianship. In a sea of world music festivals to choose from, this one really…

The Perfect Day in India

This week, India celebrated its Festival of Lights, Diwali. With this on our minds, and the approach of Kipling's 'Jungle Book' nearing our cinemas, it would be rude not to give India our devout attention. What better way to do that, than to fulfil your childhood Mowgli fantasies and dreams…

Seven of the Best: Boutique Boltholes

What do the words 'boutique hotel' mean to you? Perhaps it's the independently owned and run element? Few rooms, bespoke interiors, secluded locations, impeccable and personal service? - They're all on the list. And it has to be said that the place you rest your head at night is a hugely…

Part 2: Cambodia and the Lost World

In case you missed my last blog on Cambodia, I basically poured my heart out about this utterly enchanting country. Perhaps the most profound observation I have, though, is that Cambodians remain resolutely cheerful and strong in the face of such a harrowing history. In this article I'm…
